There is a misconception amongst some parents that mathematics education does not seriously begin until the first formal year of schooling. In fact your pre-kinder student has already begun developing a range of mathematical behaviours which will support their numeracy development.
These emerging numeracy skills, like all milestones will develop within the context of opportunity and repetition at the individual pace of your child.
Shapes are the base of many mathematical activities and to identify these shapes, it is important for kids to see examples and learn the differences between them. Our simple, printable charts will help your kids better understand the shapes.
Print the rhombus image to help your kids learn the differences in numbers of sides and angles with a visual aide to follow. Have them colour it in for some added learning fun.
